How Blue Urchin LLC started their button or icon journey

Company name

Beta Minus

Overview

We make phone apps for Windows Mobile, which we sell on Microsoft's Windows Mobile Marketplace.

On this particular task, we're making an app which is able to do a bunch of things when you get to a GPS location. It can send a text message, set off an alarm, email someone or call someone. It's intended for anyone who makes repeat journeys and wants to do something each time - wake themselves up before they sleep past their train station; text the wife when they're almost home; email their carpool buddy that they're arriving at his house - that sort of thing.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Youngish (compared to me, at least), technology-enthusiastic mobile phone users. Age 20-40.

Requirements

I need three slightly-animated icons for the app shown above. I already know what I want to appear in them - I just can't draw for toffee! The icons I'd like are:

1. A rotating planet earth (we'll use this when there's no active destination) 70x70 pixels
2. A planet earth which is trying to receive a satellite signal (we'll use this when we're, well, waiting for a satellite signal) 70x70 pixels
3. A planet earth which looks like an old-fashioned alarm clock (we'll use this when we're on the way) 70x70 pixels and also a static one in 90x90 pixels (we'll use this for the main application icon)

These are all a bit easier to envisage by looking at my horrible sample artwork. I would like them all to be a few frames - the first one needs to look like it's rotating so probably needs at least 4 frames - the others we'd be fine with just a couple of frames of animation each. But, hey, if you want to do more we'll be very happy - we have no real limit. You don't need to provide animated gifs or anything - just give us the artwork as separate images and we'll do the animation parts.

Use whatever colours you like. I have attached some sample icons that I like of other people's, to help with a bit of guidance.

Good luck!
